Communities in Schools Houston (CIS) is a campus-based Dropout Prevention program and one of Houston Furniture Bank’s (HFB) oldest furniture distribution partners. They work to provide direct social services to at-risk students in more than 100 Houston area campuses. CIS also connects students & their families with available community resources – one of those resources is providing furniture through a partnership with HFB.
HFB has partnered with CIS on various programs and initiatives over a period of several years, providing assistance to children in schools who need assistance. CIS brings families who are in need of furniture, and together we work to ensure that these children do not have to sleep or eat on the floor. Together we are Making Empty Houses Homes.
HFB is working on providing furniture to families of 200 hurricane Harvey affected students thru a grant from the American Red Cross.
Thank you, CIS, for your ongoing partnership and support.
